Visitors still have several months to see London's 2018 Serpentine Pavilion in person, but for those who can't, a 360º virtual tour offers a chance to view it from the inside.
Architectural photographer Nikhilesh Haval is behind nikcreations, which has created 360º virtual tours for a number of monuments.
A new offering on his website allows visitors to start a tour just outside the entrance to the brand-new Serpentine Pavilion by Mexican architect Frida Escobedo.
From there, users – who have the option of enhancing the experience with a VR headset – can navigate inside the pavilion, viewing its central courtyard and triangular pool as light filters through its latticed structure.
The Serpentine Pavilion virtual tour can be viewed on the nikcreations website.
If seeing the virtual version gives you a taste for visiting the real thing, the Serpentine Pavilion is open through Oct 7 in London's Kensington Gardens, and admission is free. At the venue's website, you can find out more about Frida Escobedo's pavilion design and the activities going on there this summer and fall. — AFP Relaxnews
